Color And Shape Swirl On A New Chattanooga Mural

The Kinley Hotel Mural
Kinley Hotel

On a wall outside the Kinley Hotel in downtown Chattanooga - near the Choo-Choo - a large-scale mural fills the space for all to see.

The hotel describes it as “a kaleidoscope of color and shape” - painted by Alecia Buckles, known artistically as Alecia Vera - and Briah Gober, a senior on our campus, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

Ray is the host and producer of Scenic Roots, weekdays at 3 PM ET on WUTC.
